Netflix has issued an interactive experience that you can start these holidays and play with the trivia-loving members of your family. It is called trivia, and it’s designed to ask you questions quickly, which you then have to answer within a time limit. You can play it alone and play with three rounds of increasing difficulty per attempt, or you can play with a friend in a turn-based battle with two rounds each. Whoever enters the correct answers within the time limit wins the match.
The company says the show takes its questions from every topic you can think of, from science to history to pop culture, so it would help to have a wide range of interests. You’ll unlock badges as you rank higher, including Bird Brain if you’re just starting out. Keep doing it for fun or to brag, and you might get the ultimate Triviaverse God title.
The streaming service has explored subscriber interest in interactive content in recent years and has released shows and episodes in which you can take an active role, such as Black Mirror: Bandersnatch. Last year, it took a big step in achieving its gaming ambitions and rolled out games for all Android and iOS users. And just in September, it announced it was setting up an in-house gaming studio in Helsinki, Finland, to create original games that have no ads or in-app purchases.
Netflix already has a trivia game: it launched its first interactive daily quiz show Trivia Quest earlier this year. However, Triviaverse has a simpler format and seems like something you can do in between tasks or play with friends in between other games. The experience is available in English, Spanish (LatAm), Portuguese (Brazil), French, German, Spanish (Spain), Italian, Korean, and Japanese. It can also be accessed from any device capable of running Netflix’s interactive experiences, including smart TVs, streaming media players, consoles, browsers, and mobile devices.
